USA’s eMotorWerks expands into Europe
US charging point manufacturer eMotorWerks has set up new European headquarters as it looks to drive take-up of vehicle-to-grid technology.
The California-based firm, which was acquired by Italian energy company Enel four months ago, has now established its European headquarters in Berlin, Germany, along with offices in London and Paris.
The company has also secured CE certification for its line of smart-grid integrated JuiceBox charging products that complement Enel’s public charge point solutions and fast-charging DC stations already being delivered in Europe. The JuiceBox charging stations and cloud-connected JuiceNet software platform will deliver smart-grid charging capabilities to European consumers.
“As demand in Europe is booming, increasing our footprint here allows us to ensure grids throughout the continent are primed for the smart-grid charging necessary to take advantage of everything EVs have to offer customers and energy providers,” said eMotorWerks founder & CEO Valery Miftakhov. “Our expansion supports Enel’s broader plan for more robust electric vehicle charging infrastructure throughout Europe.”
